LIT1212-3 Old Testament Literature: His Story (LC)

LIT1212 Old Testament Literature: His Story (LC) (2 credits)

This course is a study of beginnings. It shows how the ancient inspired Hebrew writers expressed in narrative form a record of God’s saving deeds from the beginning of God’s work with all humankind. From these narratives, students can see God’s unfolding plan of redemption through what Christians believe to be God’s revelation. Concepts like covenant, priesthood, law, trust, faithfulness, and righteousness come from the Old Testament. Such knowledge is basic to understanding the New Testament. The Old Testament is the only Bible Jesus, His followers, and the early believers had. Storytelling is one of the oldest methods of communicating from one generation to the next. Learn to tell God’s story from the record of the Old Testament and be equipped to pass it on to your generation and those to follow.
